I LOVED working with these kids – and their mom and dad are pretty great too – they cracked me up the entire time we were together. They have amazing smiles, superb dance moves and the best jokes. I really love working with families year after year, I love to watch them grow and change each […]

The Parker family is full of personality and you can bet that we captured it during their family photo shoot.  The light that night was BEAUTIFUL and I love the colors they chose, it made their photos so light and airy with that soft glowing light. This is one of my secrets when planning and […]

There are some people who you know are meant to be a part of your life, who are placed in it at just at the right moment and who make such a huge impact on your world.  As Christmas is only a week away, and I find myself once again missing my family in Utah, […]

I had the best time with these kids, they were so helpful; wanting to hold my reflector and pose for me. They were talkative, and so funny. I could have stayed and taken their photos for hours, and seriously look how adorable they are with their mamma – those outfits are PERFECT. I love it […]

The Jackson family purchased this photo shoot at the Bolingbrook Ward YW Auction in the spring. We’ve been trying to schedule  it for a couple months but sweet Gracie has been super sick and we haven’t been able to make it work. I had some sessions schedule and asked them if they were able to […]

They turned out so adorable, and I can’t wait to see what Marie does with them!!! Everything was perfect, the lighting, the colors, the girls, EVERYTHING!!!! I could not […]

I’m so glad the DaSilva family asked me to take their family photos again this year. Somehow we got our times mixed up and by the time we started we had about 45 minutes to do their family session, and a baptism session. But I wasn’t worried at all!!! I work really hard to be […]

About a year ago I started on a photography journey that has completely changed my life. I took some classes from Amy & Jordan who are AMAZING teachers and even better people!! They believe in empowering, encouraging and loving on their clients, and their students. Part of taking these classes is having exclusive membership in their […]

Several years ago this young elder was serving in our area as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  I loved having the missionaries in our home. I have 5 brothers, 3 of them served missions around the world. One served in Virginia, one in South Africa and one in the […]
